PEDROIA OUT DUE TO FRACTURED LEFT FINGER
Thu, 04 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Red Sox 2nd baseman Dustin Pedroia was in the lineup Tues. against the Yankees in spite of a broken finger on his left hand the team thought would sideline him for the last 2 games of the season.

“I like playing; it is fine,” Pedroia announced before the game. “Shoot, I’m able to compete 2 more games and then I have to sit around half a year and wait till I get to do it again. I have got nothing else to do apart from play football with a 3-year-old.”

Pedroia did not play Monday, and that was believed he would miss what’s left of the regular season. But Pedroia indicated that he would see how his finger felt and “try to get out there.”

Pedroia expounded Tues. that a doctor told him he could play depending on the discomfort, adding: “It does not hurt so bad.”

Manager Bobby Valentine asserted he had been assured that Pedroia cannot injure himself more by playing. “They asserted it’s only and I’m referencing only, a pain-tolerance situation.”

Asked if he was impressed that Pedroia insisted on playing the final 2 games of a lost season, Valentine recounted, “I don’t care about the situation; if anybody has been watching, and I’m sure everybody has, how you are able to miss it? Dustin always does more than you might ever expect anybody to do on a baseball field, whether it’s running to first, fielding a ball or mounting up for that day’s activity; he’s extraordinary.

“Was I surprised when I got the text that stated that he announced he’s fine? I fell off my bike, literally. And I’m not sure why I was surprised.”

“We’ve got a lot of young guys on our team,” Pedroia claimed. “Sometimes you get nicked up, stuff like that is a part of the job, you get beat up sliding into bases, get your finger stepped on, whatever. They know that I’m going to be out there and they ought to be out there, as well, if it happens to them. It is a team.”

Pedroia also wanted to show critics that the Red Sox, who had lost 6 in a row heading into Tues. and 10 of their last 11, aren’t just playing out the string. Basketball odds

“We’re playing to win,” recounted Pedroia, who said will wear a protective device on the finger. “Not like you all think that we’re packing it in. We aren’t packing it in.”

The Red Sox called the injury an avulsion fracture of the ring finger of his left hand. The injury is anticipated to heal without surgery.

Pedroia’s season was hampered in by multiple injuries to his right thumb. On May 28, he tore the adductor muscle in the thumb. He did not go on the DL, although he missed 7 games and his performance at the plate suffered noticeably.

On July 3, Pedroia hyperextended the same thumb while diving for a ball in Oakland and was placed on the DL. There had been concern that he would miss considerable time with the injury, but he returned after just 2 weeks.
